I love most most Maybelline makeup so I recently bought Maybelline New York Shine Free Oil-Control Loose Powder to try once in medium 02. It comes in only two shades which I find quite limiting, light 01 is too light and medium 02 is too dark. I tend to only use this powder over a lighter foundation so that the colour is suitable for my skin. I do like this better than using a pressed powder as with press powders sometimes your skin can look all cakey etc. It game me a very flawless almost photoshopped finish that did control the shine for the majority of the day. ( of course according to weather temperature ). I really loved that it doesnt irritate my skin and while using it, found that my breakouts were minimal. (something I am still prone to) The powder comes with a sponge applicator which I didn't find gave proper coverage so I swapped and always use a foundation brush. It also can be quite messy as powder particles find their way to my clothes and around the room where it is applied. I cant say in all honesty that I would continue using this product as drawbacks outweigh the positives. As it is not an overly expensive product it was worth the try.

I absolutely love the maybelline oil free loose powder. Most maybelline products work wonderfully on my skin. This one I love in specific, cause when I put this on it sets the liquid product on my face. It comes in two shades light and medium. My skin is in the middle so I usually just put my foundation on and then dust the loose powder on my t zone using the light shade. I usually apply it with my damp beauty blender when I use the full coverage foundations to really set everything on my skin, and then leave it for 2 minutes and dust off the access powder. This I usually do when it's a special occasion like a wedding of party. You could even apply this with a makeup brush, dip the brush in the powder, dust the access off and just fluff it on to your face. I usually do this on normal Uni days or just a casual day out. This works for me cause I tend to have really oily skin and controls that oilyness, it's better then the pressed powders, as loose powders set way better. After I use this I just spray a bit of the setting spray to keep all the product in the skin and locked in place. The product makes my skin look flawless and not cakey. Because I tend to have a lot of oilyness on my t-zone I used apply a lot of powder and that use to make my skin look really cakey. But then I started using this and now it's all good. I would recommend this to people with oily skin as this Product is oil free.
